Comparisons with Iowa

This is being posted hours before the Republican Iowa caucuses are held, so it's not a post-comparison. So for whatever it's worth, here are some numbers to bear in mind tonight.

They come from the Washington state Republican Party's straw poll of members, to gauge support for the candidates. Here are the numbers:

 Mitt Romney - 27.49%
 Newt Gingrich - 25.77%
 Ron Paul - 18.43%
 Rick Santorum - 11.31%
 Michele Bachmann - 8.76%
 Rick Perry - 5.47%
 Jon Huntsman 2.77%

Looks a little close on the top end. Now we'll see what Iowa says.
